jingle cx.

i have 2 days to fix this problem... crap.

this hill sucks. it is really the only part of the course that i just can't seem to deal with properly.

the plan this year:
ride on the tops so i can't possibly use the brakes.

eastward bound.

if you know me at all, you know i have a love affair with milwaukee.

i lived in milwaukee for only one short year, all the way back in 2000-2001. sure, the city has changed a bit since then, but not too much that i don't feel at home there when i visit.

i love milwaukee mainly because of the people, and because of the city and it's character, and partly because i hate minneapolis and chicago for various reasons, and milwaukee is the perfect storm of the awesome aspects of both those cities.

minneapolis has soooo many "cool" places/cafes/shops/whatever, that they all end up being kinda watered down. and you just can't swing a dead cat without knocking some asshole off his fixed gear these days...

and chicago has...
uh, traffic?
seriously, what does chicago have? all it has it that is a real "big city".

...a big city that you can't find a vegan resurant (or a parking spot) in.

minneapolis has this big city wanne-be thing going on, where we think we are super hip, but really we are 8 skyscrapers away from being madison fucking wisconson.

best of both worlds, and a well-kept secret.
i tell you because you won't believe me.
no one does.

that is why milwaukee remains awesome to this day.
i'd take my honeymoon there.

so, i'm going back again this weekend for the wi state cx race, which will be my 3rd trip there this year.
seems like i was just there a few weeks ago. ha.

anyway, going to the 414 for cyclocross races is something new. i have gone there for about a zillion alleycats, gone there for superweek races, stayed there to race down at the velodrome in kenosha... but a few weeks ago was the first cx racing for me in milwaukee.
i was impressed as always.

i will probably head back again in march or so, when they host the milwaukee messenger invitational. i think it'll be the 8th annual. i think i skipped number 6, but other than that i have been to all of them. i think i came as close to winning as 4th place, but now (much like cx) i don't really give a shit. it's just a good time.

velodrome cyclocross!

no longer an oxymoron!

it ain't gonna get nicer as the year goes on!
High: 38
Blustery & Raw!

plus, this event is guaranteed to piss skibby off for some reason!

...and that will be epic!

being guilt-tripped into voting for the least offensive politician isn't synonymous with genuine democracy.
